Mom and Boys

Figuring it out one day at a time.


Saturday Recap: What we did

First, CVS Minute Clinic.

I was feeling rather ill and pretty sure I had an ear infection, so this was a must-do unfortunately.

I should be a doctor because I did in fact have that ear infection.

And bronchitis.

Not feeling the greatest.

And trying to wrangle in two boys under two for an hour while mommy is at the doctor is no easy task.

After doctor.


Yay for naps.

Then outside.

We climbed on the Space Dome.





Played on the swing.



Made some Space Sand

{baby oil and flour mixed to form moldable soft sand}



And relaxed in the fresh air.



Then we went inside and watched some Final Four.



Weekend Update: Whats new with us.

We have meshed into a brilliant summer routine.  We wake up around 7:00, Lincoln plays, eats, and then goes down for a nap around 9:30.  This is when I get to workout!  I workout for about an hour, then maybe get some homework done.  And then Linc wakes up.  Then we go out and do something, maybe the dog park maybe shopping, the options are endless.  We get back home around 2:00 and it is time for the second nap of the day, and this one we take together!  Oh glorious summer.  We sleep for about an hour and a half and then get up ready to go again.  The afternoons we spend with our friends or family.  You gotta love summer!

Kato has settled into his surroundings.  He is more of a puppy than we originally thought.  He is still a little uncoordinated and LOVES to play.  Think baby kitten that weighs 60 lbs, that is Kato.

I am consistently working out again, so that makes me feel much better.

Lincoln and I cannot get enough of summer watermelon, cantaloupe, and pineapple.

I am supposed to close on my house May 31st.  Cross your fingers.

Pools open this weekend, so Lincoln and I are going to be fishes soon!!!


Weekend To-Do List

  • Clean my disaster of living room
  • Clean the disgusting bathroom
  • Dust
  • Do the dishes
  • Go through my extreme tower of mail from the week and pay my bills
  • Do the 3 HUGE piles of laundry from the last two weeks (that is right mom, if you are keeping track, no laundry has been done in this house since you left)
  • Clean out the Gerber Vanilla Stars that spilled into my purse/diaper bag* a week and a half ago
  • Make a grocery store list
  • Go to Costco and see if I can find anything on said list for cheap
  • Go to Walmart Market for the rest
  • Put away groceries (I loathe this)
  • Fold laundry (also loathe)
  • Put laundry away (lets be real this will not happen, and the clothes will remain folded on the love seat for a week before I get sick of it and actually walk them a room away to put them into drawers)
  • Make baby food for the week (a little ambitious considering I have been pretty lazy about this lately)
  • Drive to the gym and cancel my membership because I just bought a treadmill (yay!)
  • Touch base with friends in some way shape or form (probably lunch or something)
  • Find a few minutes for myself (check, this is it)
  • Do all this while keeping a baby happy, healthy, entertained, well fed, and napped

Welcome to the weekend…

Whoever said this was time off was crazy.



At least someone is getting some rest…(my brother’s dog, Dragonlips)



A Saturday morning routine.

Thank goodness it is the weekend.  I need some time to just veg, be with my son, clean the house, pay my bills, go grocery shopping, and regain my sanity so that I can keep going for another 5 days until the weekend comes again.

Don’t get me wrong I LOVE my job, but it is still a job.  I still have to wake up early, it can still be stressful, and it is still work!  Love it or not.  I love the weekends more.

I am already feeling slightly restored.  Linc and I slept in until about 8:00 a.m. and now we are settling into our Saturday morning routine.

Play in bed.

Feed little Linc.

Turn on the television to some home improvement show and chill while Lincoln plays on the floor.


I don’t know what it is about a home improvement show on a Saturday morning but I think I have developed an addiction.  I don’t think I could watch these shows at any other time during the week, but Saturday morning, glorious.

My favorite is Moving Up.  The premise of the show is that it follows three families as they “move up” into larger homes, the trick is they are moving into each others homes so in the end the families go back to their old home and see how the new inhabitants changed it.

Typically they hate it.

It is awesome.

So that is what I am doing right now.

By the way, Lincoln has now started pulling himself up on the coffee table, which is also cheap entertainment for me.  I love watching him try to work his way up there.

Crazy little boy.

I love watching him grow up.  At times at can be bittersweet as I miss the last stage of his life, but it is so fun to watch him learn new things it is hard to be too upset about the fact that my baby is becoming a boy.
